About Boyd Craven III
Boyd Craven has penned over 30 books since becoming a full-time author in late 2014 and early 2015.
He loves to hunt, fish and take long camping trips. He travels across the country in his little yellow truck for events, visiting family in Texas or just getting inspiration. Don't ask him how he got to where he is because he's still trying to figure it out.
Oh yeah, writing about myself in the third person is kind of fun, and just a taste of my sometimes sarcastic sense of humor and snark I seem to idle at. If you like a little clean romance and humor in your end of the world stories, you've come to the right place.
